Yes- Another forum member (Sasquatch) is running that combination.

35x12.5 no lift with bushwacker flat flares rubbed in the rear when I hit bumps etc. Added a lift and no more rubbing.

I have 315/75/16 (35s, for the most part, and i think 12.5'' wide), on wheels with 4.25'' backspacing. And cut my fenders to be flat, and left the inner fenders out.

My tires only rub in the front at full lock on the frame with a little bit of terrain(curb, ruts maybe, etc), and i cut the pinch seam in the rear, and don't see any rubbing back there. Have yet to wheel it any since the upgrade, but again, street driving is clear... barely. I plan on putting on a lift to compensate.

Oh, and flat fenders with 35s looks pretty good, imo. Just need to get a non-stock front bumper.

Please pay attention to the YEAR the previous posts were in. I am pretty sure he's got it sorted out by now.

Nice Jeep :-)

I will probably add a 2-2.5" lift down the road but don't want to right away. Could I add the Bushwacker or Xenon Flat Fender Flares with 35" Tires and no lift w/o rubbing? The wheels are 20x9 (-12mm offset) and have 4.5" backspacing.

I know many here will not car for my wheel/tire combo choice, but so far, I like them more then anything else I've seen.

Thanks in advance,
Jeff.

Here are links showing the wheels & tires...

It will be fine in the MALL parking lot.Put a good 3" lift on the Jeep when you start using it OFF ROAD.

I have found that 35"s and flatts will rub but only on off road use. For me I will be OK 99% of the time. Have decided to go with 4" procomp lift. A lift is not that expensive and never have to worry about how hard I hit a trail. I spent $2,000. You can put in Bump stops and not lift it but you will loose travel. Thanks for all the advice...

I have been looking at this for 3 mths. I have found on the street if you trim the pinch seams you will not rub. But offroad you will rub unless you add bump stops but that will lower your travel. I am presently installing a 4" procomp lift on a 2012 JK with 35"s. I tried without the lift and rubbed when offroad ~ i didn't even hit a hard trail and was bottoming out. I have been told a 2.5" will be enough but a 4" is only $300.00 more. Total cost for lift will be $2,000. Their are cheaper ones out their ($1,000.00)

I think 35s without a lift is the perfect look. One of these days I will take my 3" lift off and put extended bump stops in for my dirt roading and hunting.
